Kaunda can build strong U-20 side – Kalusha

ROBINSON KUNDA, Lusaka
FOOTBALL Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya says under-20 national team coach Chris Kaunda has ample time to build a formidable team that can win the Africa Youth Championship the country will host in 2017.
Kalusha said in an interview yesterday that the Kaunda-led technical bench has already started strategising for the tournament.
The 1988 African-footballer-of-the-year said the team will be built around players that are in the under-17 side.
FAZ and Airtel Network Zambia officials are currently undertaking the Airtel Talent Search and Kaunda is part of the delegation.
“I am sure you have already seen that Chris Kaunda and his technical team are already working. We want to have a strong team that will do the country proud and qualify for the 2017 World Youth Championship,” Kalusha said.
He said it will be disastrous for Zambia to be eliminated from the group stage, hence the need to build a strong side capable of taking on any opponent.
Kalusha is happy Government has given FAZ a go-ahead to host the tournament
The under-20 national team tutored by Hector Chilombo was eliminated in the first round at the 2015 Senegal Africa Youth Championship.
